The beer pours with a moderately hazy golden orange color, a decent off white head sat on the beer for several minutes but it dissipates to almost nothing. I have to admit that I’m not getting the bold aromatic hops on the nose that the neck label promises. I’m smelling a little hop spice and sweet malt, but this doesn’t have quite the aromatic punch I was expecting from the dry hopping. The taste has the same issues for me. A nice combination of sweet biscuit malt and some solid spicy hop notes, but this just doesn’t have the assertive hop flavor advertised.
Not a bad beer by any stretch, but there also isn’t enough here to go out of my way for either.
